Super Strict Parents – How to Make Your Kids Feel Better

super strict parents

Did you know that your children have super strict parents too? That’s right. We all have them whether we like them or not. And they are not to be blamed for their behavior. They were raised in such a way and the values they were brought up on do not allow them to develop any alternative thought process or any creativity.

In this modern-day and age children’s behavior is not what’s to be blamed for. Parents just do not know how to communicate with their children. So they resort to telling their children what they want to hear. This leads to a lot of frustration on the part of the parent which usually escalates into shouting and throwing things around the house.

When parents tell their kids what to do they also tell them what not to do. They tell them that if they do X then they won’t get hurt or they won’t get picked up by X-ray. Well, obviously they don’t tell them the truth. They just make things up as they go along.

Here is another one of my favorite statements. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. I’m sure you’ve heard that before. Yet, it never gets old. It’s always the same. But unfortunately, kids just take this to heart and believe it to be true.

So, how does one cope with these types of parents? How does one deal with children who have zero tolerance for people who are different? How does one get through to these children? Here are some ideas.

First, let’s look at the positive side of this. The fact that the parents have raised their children to think the way they do means that they now have to live with their kids thinking the way they do. In other words, they have to live with the result, but they do not have to tell their kids to be careful.

Second, on the flip side, what about the negative result? If a child thinks that he or she is being treated unfairly, there’s a strong likelihood that will become reality. This means that the child who thinks he or she is being treated unfairly is going to act out in a negative way.

A Much Ado 

Strict Parents

What can you do if you have super strict parents? You need to teach your children to not treat others in the way they would have been treated had they been less worthy. Children are social beings and they need to learn that they are not to pass bad traits or thoughts onto the people around them. You also need to communicate your dislike of such behaviors to your children. There are no shortcuts to getting a better-behaved child, but dealing with these super strict parents is an easy way to get started.

There are some things that you can do to effectively deal with super strict parents. One thing that you can do is to avoid arguing when talking to your kids. Instead of arguing with your kid over trivial issues, try to find out why the issue is important to your child. If you are able to find a real reason for the issue then you need to discuss it with your kids. The most important thing is to make sure that your kids understand the value of listening and cooperation.

Another thing that parents with super strict parents should do is to spend more quality time with their kids. Try not to force your kids to listen or do their homework. Spending time with your kids will help them develop an open and understanding mind towards other people. If you do this with your kids, then you are helping them grow stronger personalities because they will get to learn from someone whom they can respect. Parents with super strict parents may have a hard time convincing their kids to be open-minded and to be responsible.

It is also important that you spend quality time with your kids during vacation. Try to plan your vacation with your kids and do not let other adults into your kids’ life. You have to be the best parent that you can be because parenting is one of the most difficult jobs. If you want to be the best parent, then you have to learn how to be the best parent by getting yourself educated about the subject. Educating yourself will allow you to take charge of your children’s upbringing.

Bottom Line 

Lastly, do not hesitate to ask for help from different people. You can ask your friends or you can even find someone who is already an expert in parenting. Although this might help you relax a bit, it will also help you build up your self-esteem because you will know that no one can do it better than you. Being a good parent is not easy and you need to be willing to try different methods that others used to help raise their kids. Being a parent is not an easy task but with patience and determination, you will surely be a good parent.
